“As we celebrate the 75th year of Independence this year and look at the progress in the past seven-and-a-half decades, we feel that some situations and conditions should have changed decades ago,” he said. Modi launched the second phase of the nationwide Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY), or Ujjwala 2.0, by virtually presenting cooking free LPG connections to some beneficiaries in Mahoba in Uttar Pradesh, where Assembly elections are scheduled early next year. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who was present at the Mahoba event, handed over documents to the women on his behalf.
“For many fundamental needs such as roads, power, hospitals, cooking gas, schools, water and homes, the people had to wait for decades. Women suffered the most due to this,” Modi said. .
